I personally think it's a two way street I myself have been punched for a "proper rp" reason and I didn't feel as if I was being initiated on I could of easily returned said punch and even though the individuals allies were there I never felt as if I was getting baited into a situation. I also want to say I was armed when I was punched unless Im actively threatening people I have no reason to open fire on them for punching me so long as they have a "proper reasoning" if someone is just walking up to me to punch my character for the hell of it... yeah I would pull my gun on them and initiate. A single punch does not mean anything especially if it's rp'd well and if people are using it to get all your gear or to just kill you based on your reaction then you should report it as baiting not invalid initiation. If you want to RP a fight then do so, but if you want to rob the guy then just upright and do it rather then waiting for them to have a negative reaction to what you are doing.
I would like to say Congratulations to @Yampa one of the newest member of the messengers. I must say catching you the way we did yesterday was probably one of the most satisfying questionings I have ever found myself under and your rp was very satisfying I must say great victim rp 10/10. May his divine grace shine on your dark life and guide you to a brighter and better path.
Hey guys just wanted to say another great organic situation we found ourselves somehow getting two hostages and having a hilarious interaction with @Yampaand honestly when we got the "Old Man" the most hilarious stuff was said to him and I worked so hard to make sure I stayed in character but it was very difficult I somehow managed Quality Rp man!!!
OMG this is definitely one of the better written lores I've heard and reading the backgrounds on all the characters was just as entertaining. I really can't wait to see what this group really becomes. Im gonna wish you good luck but with the effort you put in you don't even need it
*You can hear the sounds of people in the background and children laughing as the PTT is held down* My child... Don't ever think that your spirit is broken. You are Divine under his guiding light. You are not forgotten. You have been gifted an opportunity my child. One that you should not take for granted. Find me... I will enlighten you to the gifts his Divine grace can provide.
*As the PTT is released you hear the sounds of everything being to fade into the distance*
Mr. Russo I must say RP WAS AND ALWAYS 10/10 entertaining especially when things could've turned south so quick for me and my people. TBH this is the first time I got the chills and frights and I had no control over the situation and I did not know how to react I was stumped. @Jim SmokesJust met you really today First... IM IMPRESSED LIKE REALLY I really think you are a prime example of what and who the russo syndicate is and honestly I hope to see and Rp with you more often because Idk you are just so believable and I love it 10/10 BOIS
